Top 3 Ludum Dare 23

I’ve played over 100 games from Ludum Dare 23 and have decided to give my top 3 games:

 

  1. World in Cards: This game has HUGE potential. It’s a puzzle game divided into small screens (cards) and you must move these cards around the screen to guide your man to the goal without getting hit by enemies. Simple, but addicting gameplay. Summaky please continue evolving this idea and make some new levels!
  2. Memento XII: I don’t understand how you can put so much polish on something, in such a short amount of time. The mood in this game is better than in many AAA games! I hope to see this game continue on.                                                                                               
  3. Kumiho: This is a classic 2D shooter with a twist. You have the ability to teleport around the screen in 4 directions. This really helps with dodging all of the bullets on screen. Another game I would like to see taken a step further.                                                                                                                  

Honey Heist – 1st Ludum Dare

Our first Ludum Dare was a big success. While we made a lot of mistakes and didn’t get everything we wanted into the game, we sure did learn a lot. I’m planning on writing a postmortem soon to go into the details. For now, check out our game here.

 

Concept: This game is a mix of Metal Gear Solid and arcade style gameplay. You must avoid enemies, gather pollen and return it before your energy runs out. Pollen is your score and you must meet a minimum amount before the wave timer runs out. You can return to the honeycomb at any time to drop off pollen and recharge your energy, but you may run out of time if you waste it carelessly and return too often.

Things have been coming along nicely, but there’s still so much to do! We have the basic game going, but it’s missing art and the gameplay still needs to be tweaked.

Hopefully, things will continue to go well and we can get everything we want in the game. If not, we are definitely going to finish this game properly after Ludum Dare 23 and release it on all the phone platforms. Things to be added are:

  • Radar
  • Scrolling
  • Motion Control (For phones)
  • More art, enemies, plants, gameplay, etc.

Time to go to bed…it’s going to be a busy day tomorrow!

WHY!?!! 1st Ludum Dare + Diablo 3 Beta = Trouble

I was so excited to compete in my first Ludum Dare as a team of two and then Blizzard dropped the bomb…the Diablo 3 beta is on for the exact same time! Life isn’t fair.

We’re still going to compete, but were going to need to need an extra dose of discipline to keep away.

Good luck to everyone!
